Housing Options is a multi-agency scheme which provides tailored support and advice for people in housing need.It is run as a one-stop-shop service bringing together partners from housing, social work and health.
And it has been hailed as a tremendous success.
Glasgow Housing Association, which is part of Wheatley Group, and Glasgow City Council, launched the Housing Options pilot early in 2012 in partnership with Queens Cross Housing Association, the council's North Casework Services, NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde and the voluntary sector. In February 2013, Cube and ng homes joined the pilot.
The results of the Housing Options pilot were announced at Glasgow City Chambers. Partners are now keen to roll out the Housing Options scheme across the city.
GHA North West Area Director Jackie Morris said: "We're delighted with the significant progress made by the Housing Options pilot in the North West.
By working hand in hand with our partners at a local level we've been able to offer personalised support and advice for people in housing need.
"The success of the pilot scheme is very encouraging. This project provides an immediate solution to an individual's needs and also addresses long-term housing need."
Councillor Matt Kerr, Glasgow City Council's Executive Member for Social Care, added: "The success of the Housing Options pilot could not have come at a better time.
"Welfare reform means we are bracing ourselves for a rise in homelessness in the years ahead.
"Preventing homelessness in the first place, therefore, has to be the best option, not only for individuals at risk of losing their homes, but also for organisations that provide support."
